Default Christmas Plans?

Morning you bunch of cheery bored-based-buggers.

What are you all doing for the festive holidays? Are you getting time off?

Staying or flying elsewhere?

I'm off at 2am tonight/tomorrow morning and don't mind admitting that I can't wait to see my Mummy at the airport. Been a long hard year at work and looking forward to some quality family time and a few days out of the madness that is Dubai.

However, work have been most kind to dump a barrel load of shite in my lap yesterday so today's early finish and work beers is looking like a challenge. "Can we have a report that would take you weeks to do overnight please Scamp?"...err, no, sorry...."Thanks for the quick response, unfortunately it was wrong, so please send it by lunch on Thursday".

GULP.

Staying here for Christmas but I will definitely be going home next Christmas I think. I will be back in the UK in mid January so it's not too bad.

We'll be here. I love the weather in Dubai this time of year. Lots of invitations, plenty of relaxing and playing with my new kitten.

Indeed, it's glorious. We spent a day at Safa Park last weekend and was perfect rounders weather.

It was a bit more long winded than that to be honest, but the short version it basically what it said.

Looking forward to a cold Christmas back home, althogh will miss out on Black-Eye Friday which I'm gutted about.

And this bitch Emily looks to upset some of our plans.
